Job Description
A unique opportunity has come up to join our small and enthusiastic team in the Yarra Valley. We are looking for someone who is keen to take the next step in their production career with a hands-on cellar role that will provide plenty of growth and learning for the right candidate.

This role will involve all aspects of production, from grape right through to bottle, with all of our wines processed, matured and packaged at our Healesville winery. While this is predominantly a cellar role, our team firmly believe that great wine begins in the vineyard, so we take every opportunity we can to get amongst the vines and get our boots dirty!

Please submit your resume and a cover letter detailing your favourite soil type (there are no wrong answers!) and your favourite grape variety (there is only one right answer...) using the 'APPLY FOR JOB' link above.

Reporting to the Winemaker, duties include:
- Harvest and cellar operations
- Bottling and packaging operations
- Laboratory sample preparation and analysis
- Maintenance of barrels, tanks and equipment
- Maintenance of cellar hygiene
- Warehousing support

Requirements of the role:
- Minimum 2 full years experience in a cellar role
- Completing or completed qualifications in Sciences, Viticulture or Oenology
- Physically fit and capable of standing for extended periods
- High attention to detail
- Flexibility to undertake shift work during peak production times
- Ability to work autonomously and as part of a team
- Strong verbal and written communication skills
- Valid forklift licence, valid full Australian drivers licence and reliable transport

Australian citizens, residents or other permanent visa holders preferred. Due to ongoing and challenging international border closures, we are unable to offer support to applicants who are not currently based in Australia.
